Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has offered to pay three kilograms of gold worth $ 160,000 for killing the American ambassador, Feierstein, in Yemen, and $ 23,000 to anyone who kills an American soldier inside Yemen. Thus Feierstein is worth 7 US soldiers, which is not much.
The offer doesn't refer to American ambassadors and soldiers in other countries. It is valid for six months only.
The offer was published by the AQAP Media Office, the al-Malahem Foundation, and posted on Mujahideen websites Saturday.
